Changing Your Schedule

Changes in class schedules must be made according to with the posted registration dates.

Please visit these links for payment deadlines and tuition refund policies.


When Adding a course or courses, you are placing a course(s) on your schedule and registering for the course(s). You are encouraged to add classes via MyOTC through Student Planning; however, a Registration Form may be obtained online or through Student Services. We do have a video showing step by step instructions on how to add a class within in MyOTC here.


When dropping a course or courses, you are removing a course from your schedule but will remain in at least one course for the semester. You will not receive a grade for dropped courses.  A $10 drop fee will be charged for courses dropped after the 50% refund period. Other tuition and fees may apply as per OTC’s refund policies.

You are encouraged to drop classes through MyOTC in Student Planning; however, students may use the Registration Form and submit to Student Services. Failure to properly drop a course may result in the grade of ‘F’ on the student’s permanent academic record. Failure to attend a class does not constitute a drop.  Students cannot drop all classes online in MyOTC.  When you drop all courses for a semester, it is considered a withdrawal.

When dropping classes please review the refund policies.


When you request to withdraw from all classes, you are discontinuing all coursework and will no longer be enrolled in the semester.  Students must submit a Withdraw from Classes Form to have all classes removed OR send a request to withdraw from all classes from their OTC email account in MyOTC.  A student may not withdraw from all classes in MyOTC through Student Planning.

Failure to properly withdraw may result in the grade of ‘F’ on the student’s permanent academic record. Failure to attend a class does not constitute a withdraw.

When withdrawing please review the refund policies and be aware that financial aid may be adjusted. See more information at Withdraw from Classes.

Financial aid recipients who are on Financial Aid Probation and have filed an appeal, plan on filing an appeal or have an approved appeal should be aware that ANY change of schedule, including dropping classes, on or after the first day of classes will result in loss of financial aid in future semesters.
